Choosing the Water Feature that will Best Suit your Pool

Jan 22, 2021

There are many elements involved in designing the pool you’ve always wanted. You will have to determine where your pool is going to be positioned, as well as your pool’s shape, size and colour. When bringing your dream to life with the help of your local Narellan Pools Builder, you’ll enjoy personalising your new backyard addition. The options to customise your pool don’t have to be limited to shape, size and colour, either. There are various other additions that will make your pool even more functional, and ensure it aligns with your vision.

A water feature is an addition that you may not have thought about. With an intricate and beautiful water feature, your pool will truly go to the next level.

If you’re wondering how a water feature will increase the appeal and use of your pool, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s take a look at some different water features to find out about their benefits and give you an idea of what would work best with your pool.

Sunpods and Splash Decks

A sunpod is a tiled water feature that usually juts out from a pool’s side, and a splash deck usually runs along one of the sides of the pool. Often, they both feature small bubbler-like additions, which create the effect of a little fountain. You can choose how many of these bubblers you want, depending on how much space you have available. You can also choose the type of tiles you like, so your sunpod or splash deck blends perfectly with the colour of your pool. Sunpods and splash decks also act as seating and play spaces for children.

Water Wall/Blade

A water wall (also known as a water blade) is an eye-catching display, constructed on the edge of your pool. With this water feature, water feeds out of a thin spout, directly back into the pool, creating the effect of a wall of water. A great feature of water walls is that they can be customised in so many ways, with alternative options for material, texture and colour.

Rainfall Curtain/Waterfalls

Rainfall curtains are similar in concept to water walls, but are usually made on a larger scale to create the look of a waterfall that goes into your pool. Not only are they are a wonderful play feature for children, they’re also amazing to look at! Rainfall curtains, like many other water features, can be further customised with lighting in an array of colours.

Deck Jets

Deck jets are placed in your poolside decking or paving, and when turned on, create an arched fountain of water that falls directly into your pool. If you’re looking for an interactive feature for your pool but are hoping to have something installed that doesn’t take up much physical space, deck jets are a great option!

As highlighted, there are numerous types of water features to choose from, that can bring even more style and functionality to your pool. Whether you want something more minimalist like deck jets, or you want to go big with a rainfall curtain – water features are a wonderful addition to your pool!
